Zeus/Bronze/h19cm x w35cm x d14cm/£2,100

The bronze 'Zeus' pictured here was first inspired by a Belgian Blue bull I saw parading at the Royal Berkshire Agricultural Show. My sculptor's eye draws me to shape and form and the double musculature of this breed is magnificent.

Bronze is a magnificent medium. So here we have the Greek God, Zeus, depicted as a white bull, one of his many disguises, in bronze. The lost wax process of bronze casting is complex, highly skilled and has many stages. See my video of the process using this link https://vimeo.com/468960051. Visit my studio to see the full port folio of my bronzes from 18th September - 10 October 2021. I am open Sundays and Thursdays 11am-5pm.

In my studio I have a kiln and two potter's wheels. This is where I create ceramic sculptures, teach ceramics in regular classes, as taster sessions, as Prosecco & Clay parties, children's parties, and I do hand casting. I am so looking forward to welcoming visitors, there is plenty of room in the garden to wait and peruse. I plan to have cake available for our enjoyment.
